For information on payments made to facilities for defined service bundles and procedures, you can go to ACHA pricing website. The service bundle information is a non-personalized estimate of costs that may be incurred by the patient for anticipated services and actual costs will be based on the services actually provided for the patient.
GOOD FAITH ESTIMATE
If we are out of network with your insurance or you are paying completely out of your pocket, you have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate (GFE) explaining how much your health care will cost. The GFE is based on your description of condition received on the phone or internet by staff who are physicians, so if either your symptoms change or your physician discovers additional issues, the actual charges may exceed this estimate.
Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have certain types of health care coverage or who are not using certain types of health care coverage an estimate of their bill for health care items and services before those items or services are provided.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any health care items or services upon request or when scheduling such items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.
If you schedule a health care item or service at least 3 business days in advance, make sure your health care provider or facility gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing within 1 business day after scheduling. If you schedule a health care item or service at least 10 business days in advance, make sure your health care provider or facility gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing within 3 business days after scheduling. You can also ask any health care provider or facility for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service. If you do, make sure the health care provider or facility gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing within 3 business days after you ask.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more for any provider or facility than your Good Faith Estimate from that provider or facility, you can dispute the bill.
Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate and the bill. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises/consumers, email FederalPPDRQuestions@cms.hhs.gov, or call 1-800-985-3059.
